Do you think you just need more willpower to stop giving in to temptation?
I used to think if I just had more willpower, more self-control and a little bit more discipline, I would finally have it altogether around food.
I mean, almost every diet out there tells you “not to give in!” “resist the cupcake, it’s not worth it!” and “you can do it, don’t succumb to temptation!”
But the reality is, how many times can we resist the 2nd piece of cake, the basket of bread at the restaurant and the homemade baked cookies in the break room JUST based on willpower alone?
One time? Maybe 3 or 4?
And then we give in, eat the cookie and convince ourselves that we just need more willpower…
So, if we aren’t relying on willpower, then how do we resist the homemade cookies?
That’s what today’s video is all about 🙂
